Visiting restrictions remain in place at hospitals across the Saolta Group - including Mayo and Sligo University Hospitals, University Hospital Galway and Merlin Park, Portiuncla Hospital in Ballinasloe and Roscommon University Hospital.

The visiting restrictions were introduced last Friday and will continue this week, as an infection control measure.

Members of the public are asked not to visit hospitals across the Saoltas group, other than end-of-life situations, and other exceptional circumstances, as agreed with the ward manager in advance of visiting.

However, outpatient, X-Ray and other scheduled appointments and procedures are going ahead as usual at Mayo University Hospital.

A hospital spokesperson said that, while restrictions are in place for visitors, the services at Mayo University Hospital are not impacted, and all clinics and procedures are running as normal.
